I was in Philly for a couple days. I had pretty much an afternoon to visit some shops and eat. Whenever I travel, I get recommendations from locals and friends so that I'm prepared. No time to waste on crappy food and tourist traps. I recommend the following based on the few hours I had to walk around while I wasn't working :) I'll be back to explore more, until next time Philly.
Vagabond | 37 N3rd St.
Cutest boutique around, got myself in some trouble in there. Great selection of clothes, be sure to check out their vintage collection in the back.
Art in the Age | 116 N3rd St.
Menswear primarily, a great selection of goods including some of my pals (Morris Kitchen and Blades Natural Beauty). Snap is delicious!
Moon & Arrow | 754 S4th St.
A great mix of vintage clothing, used furniture, jewelry and home goods.
Zahav | 237 Saint James Place
Based on everyones recommendations, this middle eastern restaurant did not disappoint. Hummus, labne, yummy salads, fresh baked bread. Nom.
La Colombe Coffee | 130 S19th St.
One of my favorite coffee distributors :)
